WP7-running HTC Ignite And Prime Could Go Official Soon

By 05:22 Mon, 12 Jul 2021 Comments

After months of silence, the HTC Prime and Ignite, a pair of Windows Phone 7 devices, have resurfaced at the Dutch website of popular retail chain ThePhoneHoutilize where they are listed as "Coming soon". The HTC Prime packs a slide-out QWERTY, while the HTC Ignite is a standard bar.

We first saw the two when a Chinese site uncovered their renders along with the HTC Sensation, which at the time was still known as "Pyramid". The Sensation went official a while ago, but the HTC Prime and Ignite have remained undercover.

Unless the ThePhoneHoutilize site jumped the gun way too early, HTC should be announcing these devices soon. Unfortunately, the site gave us nothing on specs - all we have is the initially reported specs.

They put the HTC Prime in the mid-range with a 3.7" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) and a 5MP capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. Random-Access Memory (RAM) is reportedly 512Mega Bytes (MB) but there was nothing on the CPU. And of course, there's the four row slide-out QWERTY.

The HTC Ignite seemed oddly underpowered with an 800Mega Hertz (MHz) Central Processing Units (CPU) (the Microsoft-set minimum is 1GHz) and 512Mega Bytes (MB) RAM. We also learned the Ignite had a 5MP snapper and HSDPA-enabled 3G (7.2Mbps/2Mbps). Presumably, both phones run the latest Windows Phone 7 Mango.

The ThePhoneHoutilize offers nothing to confirm or refute these specs - but you can sign up for notifications when recent info is available.
